. this is not really -- the obama administration knows that the last thing they want to do is to portray themselves as anything even close to confiscating guns. that's why even in their language, they talk about curbing gun violence. they don't use the word gun control. they do that as a way to try and avoid some of this insane talk about hitler who you should never, never, by the way, invoke because that is -- >> i entirely agree and i think all of us wood. >> absolutely. everyone would, and i think it diminishes any intelligent discussion of how to curb gun violence when you go that way. >> absolutely. i want you all to hear from the pied piper of lunatic conspiracy theories on the right. take a listen, please, to the one and only rush limbaugh. >> talking about guns and executive orders. if given the chance, they'd take your gun away from you. what in the world are you talking about? executive orders for what? taking guns. confiscation. >> ryan, he appears to be whipping up a frenzy that has no basis in fact. isn't this also highly irresponsible knowing that there are people in this country who

here? >> look, i think this is an excuse and think the obama administration which wanted to find a way not to keep our troops in iraq, wants to find a way not to keep our troops in afghanistan. i think this is a guaranty for a taliban takeover, resurgence of al qaeda, the sacrifice of everything our troops have won for us over there and as i say, i think this is a question of getting some good negotiators. we could have resolved that program in iraq if we had the will and tenacity to do so. we can do it here in afghanistan as as well. i think it is less a question of what hamid karzai wants but more a question of what barack obama wants or doesn't want. jenna: that is a big question. we heard from general allen reports that he had suggested to the pentagon upwards of wanting 20,000 troops to remain in the country after the end of 2014. what do you think about the fact that this debate, this negotiation, this floating of the idea of the zero option, is happening very much in the public sphere? that we're talking about it now, that it is out in the open rather than behind closed doors, h

the debt ceiling? we're approaching that. we heard from the obama administration they have no backup plan if congress does not raise the debt ceiling, and the head of the house republican conference kathy mcmorris rogers says i think it's possible we should shut down the government to make sure the president understands we're serious. what do you think of that kind of talk? >> that's a terrible statement to make. shutting down government is different. now, we've got to be clear here. there's shutting down government in a budget fight. that's one thing. that's okay you can argue about that. the debt ceiling however is messing around with the full faith and credit of the united states. it would be bad for the economy when we played that game of russian roulette back in august of 2011. you could see the economy decline. you could see job creation going away. i'm with newt gingrich on this one. newt gingrich had taken a strong position that we should not use, that the republicans should not use the debt ceiling as leverage in this cutting spending. let's use the continuing

[talking over each other] judge napolitano: maybe he doesn't care about policing various constituencies. i don't know what his personal views are, but -- in colorado and washington. stuart: not in california. colorado and washington, recreational use of marijuana, the more difficult case to sell because anybody over 21 in the privacy of their home can use it. in california there is the intermediary, you have to go to a doctor and demonstrate the existence of pain, congressional means, and the doctor, the way -- that is what we interfere with. inexplicably would do so in california and new jersey, i am arguing that treating the states equally. stuart: make a judgment. in the year 2001 everett is, 20 years from now, and marijuana, cigarettes, and not get prosecuted for it?

to the food stamp issue that we have pursued with the obama administration where we ask them to test the experimental project where we limited the use of the food stamp benefits for the products that were clearly unhealthy and contributed to the obesity problem and higher health care costs was really more about health care and more about a health problem than a sort of concerted and meditated desire to influence people's behavior. the mayor is very devoted to and very committed to policies that improve the health outcomes of families for people in the city of new york. this is something he absolutely believe in and she fought hard for. fortunately the president and secretary of agriculture said no it isn't something they wanted to test or experiment with and see how it would work. but i don't know that at least from the bloomberg administration that that carries forward to the many, many other places or ways. we definitely want to encourage work. we think work is a key part of our individual lives and livelihood in the city and it ought to be a prerequisite to receiving public assist
